Hint: If you're on a tight budget and your kid isn't squirmy, try your local old school barber shop. The results can vary but for simple trims, they're usually adequate and you can't beat the price. Don't do-it-yourself. Although it may seem like a good idea at the time, those crooked bangs your kid will have to the live with the next four weeks should remind you that it isn't.
